Wigmore, St James Church
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Wigmore church has strong associations with the Mortimer family, who founded St James as a collegiate church. The oldest part of the building is the nave, which features late Saxon or early Norman herringbone stonework on the north wall. The churchyard cross is much restored, but it stands on an original 14th-century base.
A recent renovation has exposed more late Saxon stonework, estimated to have been added around 1050. This herringbone construction has been left exposed for visitors to see.
